Marine Systems | Accredited 6 month program | Enrolls in September & March

Transform your passion for boating into a meaningful and in-demand career as a certified marine technician. IYRS’ hands-on Marine Systems program will prepare you to seamlessly enter the marine industry as a systems technician.

At IYRS, you’ll learn the theory and technologies of both stand-alone and fully-integrated systems and the inner workings of a powerboat down to the most meticulous details. By the time you graduate, you’ll be able to install, repair, and troubleshoot everything from engines and electrical systems to computer-based electronics and hydraulics.

During this program, you'll build free-standing, complete simulation panels that contain the essential systems that go into modern boats and apply the knowledge you've learned in an industry externship, gaining valuable resume-building experience.
